I look at my youngest son and begin to wonder why his feeding problem had such an enormous impact on him. I mean, we're talking about only 9 months or so of his "problem." He had GERD, was in constant pain..and so wouldn't eat. He eventually had surgery to correct the problem. And it has. However, for the past 11months we have been dealing with his food and oral aversions sparked by his original "problem." He sees a therapist on a weekly basis to combat his unwillingness and seeming un happy eating experience. It amazes me that in his short life he has had such a turbulent existence. I mean, how could something that was only a part of him for such a short time....have such an impact on him?? It seems we are attempting to undo "damage" caused by his "problem." A problem that was around for less time than we have been working(and continue to work on)on getting him back on track.
So....now on to my question. Can breastmilk have such an impact?? What impact does it actually have or CAN have??
